“We also know that we are experiencing an extremely minimal influenza season this year. So just understand that the common cold is no longer common this year. If you start to experience cold or flu-like symptoms, it would be wise to seek a COVID-19 test”.

Don’t forget you must sign in and out even if you have parent permission to leave! You will serve detention if you forget. We need to know if you are on campus. Thank you!!!

If you need the links to the at-home or return request forms, please email Ms. Rorey: Remember that you should expect to wait 24 hours before you are approved by the school. Therefore, do not submit the request late in the evening or early in the morning and assume that you will immediately have permission to attend online or return to school. Thank you!

The first grade to fill their tubs (in the SA Myers Gallery) with cleaning supplies, wipes and masks wins a dress down day! The grade that has the most at the end of the month wins donuts!


Please help us stay healthy so we can continue to be together!


Thank you so much for being diligent about wearing your masks! A few of you are still having trouble and for clarification, here is the process for you:
1. A faculty member will give you a warning.
2. After the warning, that faculty member will infract you and you will serve detention. This will be communicated to your parents as well.
3. After you serve detention, if another infraction occurs, you, your advisor, and your parents will meet with Mrs. Zalac and there will be escalated consequences.

Clubs meet Wednesdays 9:15-9:45! Look out for an email from your club leaders!
